Cone crushers are popular rock crushing machines in aggregates production, mining operations, and recycling applications. They are normally used in secondary, tertiary, and quaternary crushing stages. However, in cases where the grain size of the processed material is small enough by nature and the traditional primary crushing stage is not needed, also cone crushers can carry out the first stage of the crushing process.
Cone crushers are very suitable for size reduction and shaping in the downstream of a crushing circuit. They reduce the material in a crushing cavity by continuous compression between a fixed element (bowl liner) and a moving element (mantle).
Cone crushers are equipped with a hydraulic setting adjustment system, which allows adjusting the crusher settings to fully match the material, feed size, and capacity requirements.
